I made this a good while back for the Tefal Slimmers Secret Challenge since this is a far healthier way of making arancini as there's no deep-frying involved.

Serve with a lovely pepperonata sauce along with a few baby salad leaves.

What are Arancini Balls?

Italian snacks consisting of a ball of rice coated with bread crumbs and then deep-fried and are a staple of Sicilian cuisine.

My ActiFry version is far better for you. The most common fillings are al ragù or al sugo, filled with ragù, mozzarella and/or caciocavallo cheese. I chose mozzarella and red pesto.

Now the red pesto was shop-bought otherwise this dish becomes a little too much faff so relieve yourself of too much faffing and buy a jar!

Just be sure to get a good brand. You can buy panko crumbs in the UK in any good supermarket or over at Amazon if you can't get them.

It's a shame I haven't got a picture of the arancini when it was cut open since the filling is a gooey and oozy delicious thing to see and tastes amazing😊

How do you Pronounce Arancini?

Arancini is pronounced A-Ruhn-See-Ny

If you have a Tefal ActiFry and like Arancini then you really ought to give this a go. You can of course just use leftover risotto and bake in the oven.
